Tim Chuey Weather:
You’ll need rain gear if you are going to the Olympic Track and Field Trials today. It will dry out after some Sunday morning showers. Next week and the 4th of July look good with just about normal temperatures and no rain.
An upper level low (“U” shape on brown line) has set up along the Pacific Coast returning the chance of showers and increasing the chance for today. A frontal system will move through today increasing the chance for showers. The pollen count will stay high enough, with showers stopping and starting, to bother those athletes who are allergic when it is dry. At least we don’t have smoke from wildfires or grass field burning as we did during the previous Olympic Trials held here.
Forecast for the Southern and lower Mid Willamette Valley including Eugene-Springfield and Albany-Corvallis: Cloudy with a good (50%) chance of rain this AM, showers likely (60%) this afternoon (0.10 in. of rain possible), a good (50%) chance of showers tonight (under 0.10 in. of rain possible), cloudy with a slight (20%) chance of showers Sunday AM, a mix of clouds and sun in the afternoon, partly cloudy Sunday night and Monday AM, mostly sunny and Monday afternoon, then just partly cloudy Monday night highs 72-77 lows 55-50. Partly cloudy & pleasant Tuesday through Wednesday (July 4th) and continuing through Friday highs 74-78 cooling to 75 by Friday lows 50-53. (seasonal averages high 78 low 50)

Because weather forecasting is a combination of science, intuition, and timing there can be no absolute guarantees that individual forecasts will be 100% accurate. Nature is in a constant state of flux and sudden unexpected weather events can happen.
